Our Curriculum


Curriculum Intent Statement

At Swainswick Primary School the curriculum is designed to:

  • constantly build upon children’s prior learning,

  • provide first hand learning experiences,

  • allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.


Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values.


We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning through using 5 curriculum drivers:

  • Learning Behaviours,

  • Global Responsibility,

  • Wellbeing,

  • Creativity, and Expression

  • Effective Comunication

Our 1st central curriculum driver ‘Learning Behaviours’ promotes independence and positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for life-long learning and future success.  


In addition, local and global community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year.  Children leave Swainswick Primary with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
